to do that. and the feds should respect the states' rights. what president obama can do is make all gun crimes federal crimes. congress can forbid individuals from crossing state lines with certain types of weapons. bank robbery is a federal crime. so is some drug dealing. why not put gun felonies in that category? let's take a look at chicago which has banned handguns. more people were murdered by guns in chicago in 2012 last year than were killed among coalition forces in afghanistan. obviously the gun ban in coshocton doesn't work. do we all get that? what would work is a 10-year mandatory federal prison term for anyone convicted of any gun crime in the windy city or anywhere else in america. rob a seven blefn a gun. 10 years in the federal pen. illegally possess a gun, staple deal. 10 years. that's how you keep guns off the street. don't believe me? take a look how drastically the crime rate has fallen in the u.s.a. over the past decade. nationwide, violent crime down 23%. why? because of strict mandatory prison terms for chronic criminals. if you read the late james wilson, the nat
caucus because they have six seats up next time. >> all of those senators, i showed. >> in states where mr. obama got less than 42% of the votes, the republicans need to control the senate six seats. >> so how hard does he push this, cokie? >> i think he pushes parts of it. the assault weapons ban is obviously a huge problem and that's what most people are pushing back against. although it is interesting with the increased number of women in congress that it might have a better shot than 1994, 29% of republican men voted for the assault weapons ban and almost 70% of republican women. so you could see a difference because of that. but i think that background checks, waiting period, you know, the biggest gun violence is suicide. and to put in a waiting period could help with suicide. >> rick, how do you -- >> so i think you could start to see some movement on those aspects. >> how do you think republicans should play this? >> i think we should stick to our guns and, you know, george reminded me of something i said to him back in '94 when i ran for the senate in pennsylvania. he said, how
if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progressive movement in this country in the democratic party. how can you not stand with him on this? how much more information do these lawmakers need? have we not covered it enough? other democratic senators with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of i7d ind. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favor of the president's plan and said he believes it has bipartisan support. those senators all have a or a-plus ratings from the national rifle association. reid has a b rating. these senators know they will lose their high rating and maybe become a target with the nra if they vote for a sensible assault weapons ban. you see, we had the assault weapons ban back in 1994, but we're so screwed up in wash

states of america. host:ing on the proposals president obama some specific legislation, 23 executive orders as we mentioned, and also a call for more federal research. louisiana, this is shanda, independent line. caller: yes. i just wanted to say, it's not about controlling guns in the hands of people who can buy guns under what the law says. criminals don't buy guns. criminals steal guns. and unless you can put a law into effect to keep criminals from breaking into people's houses and stealing guns, then making the gun laws tougher for the people that can actually buy guns to get them is not going to solve anything. host: ahead of the president's comments this morning, the hill reporting the national rifle association hours before the president debuted his plan to combat gun violence, they called the president, quote, an elitist hypocrite for opposing the gun lobby's proposal to place armed guards in schools. the white house reaction to that just before the president spoke, the white house says, the n.r.a. video referencing the president's daughters are, quote, repugnant and cowardl
, and universal health care is not a political platform, and the united states is not bogged down in multiple international wars, and the girls have a dog. look, president obama is go gin to enter his new term with with a new ad jen da already under a bright spotlight, and at the top of the list, immigration reform and gun control policy. for the first time 52% of americans favor allowing undocumented immigrants with jobs to apply for legal status. 56% of americans believe that stricter laws should govern the sale of firearms. the wind of public opinion, so to speak, would appear to be at the president's back, but right in front of him remains something very different from when he entered office four years ago, a republican-controlled house. initially elected with an outsidef of the beltway appeal, the president is now by definition a washington insider and for anything to get done in his second term, he is going to have to play an insider's game. joining me now is one of the most important allies that the president has on the hill. since 1993, he has represented the sixth district of south c

. president obama lays down his marker on the next fiscal fight fight facing congress in the country. will republicans fight back saying nothing will happen without more spending cuts? >>> state of play. democratic governors are moving fast to change gun laws in their states, will support on the state level help or hurt the white house push here in washington? promises promises. today a deep dive into a president obama pitched as candidate obama and what he did from that first inaugural speech to his announcement speech and, of course, when he accepted that nomination. we are looking back at all of it. it is very interesting and you should take look. good morning from washington. tuesday, january 15, 2013. this is the -- little bit late, "daly run-down." i'm chuck todd. first reads of the morning. with washington once again careening towards a fiscal crisis, this one now about debt and spending. the president used his last news conference of his first term to make it clear he intends to stand firm and refuse to negotiate over the debt limit. >> republicans in congress have would choi
, plus a valuable coupon. campbell's. it's amazing what soup can do. >>> president obama will forge ahead with his plan to reform the nation's immigration system. a process that he may outline in his state of the union address next month. the morning times reports that the president will push for one single comprehensive bill that would include a pathway for citizenship for the roughly 11 million undocumented workers. behind the scenes the white house has been working on the contours of a bill that is expected to be rolled out in march with the senate vote planned for august. speaking to the "new york times", senator chuck schumer vowed action on the issue. this is so important now to both parties that neither fiscal matters more guns will get in the way. as for the bill itself, the pathway to citizenship would come with a payment of fines and back taxes. the bill would also include a nationwide legal verification system for all newly hired workers. additional visas for highly skilled immigrants and a guest worker program. top senate democrat harry reid sounded optimistic about its passag
into a debate with optimism when you have a person elected with constituents in my home state of texas who said the president is using children as a human shield and talking about impeachment rather than the solid ideas before all of us. >> president obama was never going to win them over. what was interesting about today is how sort of loaded they were with ideas that were proposed by ideas like la pierre who called for a mental health database. they provide carrots to have federal agencies do a better job providing for mental health information to go into the background system. there is a lot of lower hanging fruit in the ideas he put forward that could have bipartisan support. >> pointing out the background checks, i think the odds are according to a couple of blocks, about 75%, they see it below 50% to get the assault weapons passed of any kind. at least some movement if possible on a few of those ideas. here we are the day before the president made this announcement of what to expect with executive action and the laws he would want congress to pursue. you have this nra ad that is going aft
to advance conservatism. instead of playing defense against the obama agenda here in washington. notwithstanding the defeat to mitt romney last year. the wake of last year's election in 24 states literally half the country, republicans now control not only the governor's offices but both majorities of the two chambers the houses and the senate. it's a big advantage. it's a chance for republicans to play offense at the states. and quietly aggressively next week when they meet in charlotte, north carolina. that's one of the things they are going to be talking about. look to scott walker back in wisconsin from last year as a model. this conference is going to it be a big deal and it's the republican's first attempt to get things in order and move ahead. >> bill: they have to do something because we will be back to the blue moose party because the -- >> -- that's a dated reference. >> i'm sorry. >> so is garb glomplet me and teddy roosevelt on long island we were sculling. when we come right back, it will be miller time. lance armstrong not looking forward to this segment, i can tel
faith and credit of the united states of america is not at bargaining chip. >> on tuesday following a meeting that took place in the west wing, president obama surmounted a huge hurdle in the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary when influential new york senator chuck schumer gave it his blessing. yesterday the president forcefully and emotionally laid out his proposals to curb gun violence and challenged americans to confront the representatives and stand up to the nra. let's listen. >> ask them what's more important, doing whatever it takes to get an "a" grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade. >> joining me is former rnc chair and machines contributor michael steele and democratic strategist bob shrum. shrummy, i have to start with you. it sounds like you got into the president's ear. i know you haven't that i know of, but he's starting to charge this campaign for the second term the way i think you like to run campaigns. go to the essential issues, fight them, get tough a
